Applestraw asked a question on 15 Jun 2014 9:26 PM

When a Purchase order is approved and sent to warehouse department to view as Warehouse Receipt.  Warehouse department are not able to see Supplier or who the supplier is.  Is there a way Warehouse can see the name of the supplier which is very important because supplier's come in and some do not come in with a reference turning up with just the physical goods.  Our warehouse department needs to verify and match what goods came with which vendor.  Please assist because the vendor who sold us NAV says it cannot be done.

Yes, I have taken Aleksandar's recommendation and it works, and Olof and  Raokman's.  Thanks.   Changing NAV partners - Has been in my mind for a couple of months but paid too much -  still no results.  Had me thinking NAV was not a good package to have purchased.  Ha!

When you open Warehouse Receipt, you cannot see vendor by default. But you can see vendors for each line using 'Source Document Line' from each line in document.

If you need to see Vendors, you (your partner) can make small customization and add this field to the line. When system fill 'Source No.', system can fill 'Vendor No.' as well.

Hi, Applestraw. I'm sorry to hear that. NAV is excellent solution for the most of companies, but the most important thing is that you have to choose partner very carefully. You have to find and see partners references in the same business. Several times, I saw very bad implementations, but with some corrections, they can become great.

If you need additional help... But these problems can be relative easily solved by any partner.

Hi Aleksandar,  

Thank you for your help.  Seems like my NAV vendor had just to tell us this without saying that warehouse just cannot see who the supplier is.

This is how I think you should work with Warehouse Receipts:

This procedure makes it a lot easier to work with NAV.

You then see the vendor number as the as the Destination No. in the Warehouse Request table, if you want the vendor name on the same page it should be a small modification.

"If you create your warehouse receipts in advance you will have problems finding them since the list of warehouse receipts does not really include any useful information."

"If there are remaining lines or quantities on the warehouse receipt, then delete it! If not the list of warehouse receipts will grow and you will have an hard time finding back to it."

...the original question was practical and based on actual practice in receiving and doesn't assume one receipt per day or whatever you're assuming.

I'd like to know how to determine whether an item is Lot-controlled before trying to receive it...without just taking a shot at it and waiting for the error message.

Hi Applestraw,

Given your comment that your partner could have told you that by design you cannot readily see the vendor from the warehouse receipt line BUT there is a way (which is selecting Line > Source Document Line as mentioned by Aleksandar) - you might think about changing NAV partners lol.

Just let us know :-)

Hi Aleksandar, I think the Vendor needs the help more than us... almost 1 year on, system not even 40% complete. Anyway,  being that they are Ms partners and are providing NAV packages we thought all was  going to be fine.  Never mind - our problem, no one else's.
